IMPORTANT READ BEFORE Make your Grafting Request Order

Spring Grafted Trees should be ready the following Fall. Deadline is May 01

Late Summer & Fall Grafted Trees should be ready the following Spring. Deadline is October 01

 

A Pre-Order Grafting Request is an order for us to produce the specific tree that we don't currently have available in stock. We must graft the tree and then it must go through a multi-month process to heal and grow. Only Once the small tree has completed two flushes of growth since it was grafted do we consider it ready to leave our nursery.

There are two "Sunset" mangos in Florida: one from Bokeelia, Pine Island that we call the 'Frank Adams Sunset' described herein, the other from Merritt Island which we do not yet have.

 

The Frank Adams Sunset is estimated by pedigree analysis to have been a cross between Haden and Amini , and was described by the Florida Mango Forum in the 1950s. It was planted at the Tropical Research Center in Homestead in the 1940s and has survived in the collection of Fairchild Garden. 

 

The fruit are small, oval in shape, turning yellow-orange at maturity. They have a firm, fiberless yellow flesh with a monoembryonic seed. The flavor is of the classic group, rich and sweet with a hint of sweet melon.

 

The trees are moderately vigorous, upright growers with open canopy and have a reputation for producing well.  Our Sunset has grown rather slowly since planting but has had several moderate-sized crops the last several years.

 

It is an early-season variety in Florida, ripening from June to July.
